Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office advice
For UK residents, it's best to follow Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office advice: always take travel insurance when on holiday as the GHIC (Global Health Insurance Card) card does not cover everything. When skiing make sure you have winter sports cover for extra protection when skiing.
